                             Staring At Your Window
                           With A Suitcase In My Hand

                          Words & Music by Jon Bon Jovi
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The intro is played with an open D and a Gmaj7 (see Chords at bottom).

* For the more experienced player

If you listen to the CD you'll notice the high note in the background, it's an F#
and an A played on the 1st string (frets 2 and 5). Jon recorded this as an overdub and
put it in the background. When you're playing alone you can overcome this by putting
the 2 together. Just play the open D or Gmaj7 and add the A note (See Chords at bottom).

The first 2 bars are just the notes, play on 1st string F# and A (frets 2 and 5).

Enjoy,  Maurice Blaak

Intro D - Gmaj7


D
You think you know me, just because you know my name
G                                                         D
You think you see me, 'cause you've seen every line on my face
                                            G
You want to want me just because I say that I want you
                                                  Bm
But does it matter, if anything I'm saying is the truth.


                       G               Em
You need somebody, somebody to hold on to
                                  A
But this ain't the movies and we ain't heroes.


D
Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
           Gmaj7
The night street lights buzz as the cars roll by and the night don't give a damn
   Em
My boots just keep on walkin' but my heart don't understand
        A                              G
Why I'm staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand


D
I said I want you.
                                   G
But when we woke up, one of us was crying.
                                                        D
You rolled over, and all you said was "Man, I think I'm dying"

Our song is over, this band of gold has been feeling like a noose
G
You place your bets, 'cause no one thinks they'll lose


D
Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
          Gmaj7
The night street lights buzz as the cars roll by and the moon don't give a damn
   Em
My boots just keep on walkin' but my heart don't understand
        A                              G
Why I'm staring at your window


    Bm
The light of love can blind you till you cover up your eyes
        G
And you try to find the reason not to say goodbye
         Em
It's the curse of every sailor standing on dry land
A                             G
Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand

Solo 4 bars

Bm                           G
         The night is fading like my old tattoo
Bm                         F#m        G               A
             A heart and a dagger that says forever

D
Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
             Gmaj7
The night street lights buzz as the cars roll by and the night don't give a damn
    Em
I'm getting tired of talking and I don't understand
        A                              G
Why I'm staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand


Fade out with solo (sha la la la la)
